Finally, after years of waiting, the ancient underground Fontanelle Cemetery is open, after extensive restoration by the city of Naples, Italy. Visits to this mysterious place are by telephone reservation only. Reservations can be made by calling +390815490368 from Monday through Friday with calls taken only from from 10AM till noon. This morning we visited the newly opened site and took several new photos.
You may see the photos and if you read Italian, our impressions as well, of the restoration of this ancient subterranean burial place. (I have not translated Fulvio's comments yet! ) At one time back in the 1950's, a city street car line ran out to the Fontanelle Cemetery to accommodate cult followers who adopt and care for the remains of those buried hundreds of years ago.

If you have followed our numerous articles over the past months you will be pleased to know that the recently restored and cleaned underground, just opened to the public after being closed for many years, is a very popular destination. The Fontanelle cult cemetery was the most visited site in the city of Naples, Italy during the citywide "Monuments In May" celebration. While an actual visit to this incredible ancient cemetery is best, our Napoli Underground webmaster, Fulvio Salvi, has produced a modest video which you may download. Fulvio is a noted urban speleologist, and expert on the "Sottosuolo" or "underground" in the parallel city beneath Naples which he has explored for decades. The audio is in Italian, but you can make your own audio in your mind from the images presented.

To download Fulvio's video go to: The video


Again, Fulvio is no Cecil B. DeMille, but his amateur video is certainly interesting and will give you a good look around inside this fascinating place that has been closed to the public for so long!
